We're Gangin on a Bear Hunt: We're Going on Bear Hunt in Scots by Michael Rosen

We're gangin on a bear hunt.
We're gaun tae catch a braw yin.
Whit a bonnie day!
We're no feart.

Get ready for a big adventure, as a family of brave bear hunters trudges through muckle forests and skirlin snawstorms, claggie mud and a deep cauld river in search of a glowerin bear.

Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury's classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt is charmingly recreated in Scots for little adventurers. The original words and illustrations are transformed by language expert Susan Rennie into lively Scots for a bright and bonnie take on this favourite tale. Perfect for reading aloud with young children.

We're Gangin on a Bear Hunt Reviews

'Such a lovely translation of a brilliant adventure rhyme... This is such a brilliant story and jings your kids will love hearing you trip over the Scots words. BookBairn actually enjoys this version more than the original -- I thinks Scots words are a bit more descriptive and onomatopoeic than the original -- and we will definitely be enjoying this one over and over again!'
-- BookBairn, book blogger
